Providing Educational Opportunities

Excelsior’s Philosophy

What you know is more important than where or how you learned it.®

Affordable, and Innovative

For over 40 years, Excelsior College has expanded access to higher education for adult learners through its flexible, affordable, and innovative programs and services. Established by the New York State Board of Regents in 1971, America’s first virtual university was founded on the philosophy that “what you know is more important than where or how you learned it.”

Unlimited Possibilities

With a commitment to supporting workforce development, individual employability, and career advancement, Excelsior College presents a compelling, quality model for the university of the 21st century in online teaching, evaluation of prior learning, and comprehensive degree-completion advising.

Excelsior History

Excelsior College was founded in 1971 by the New York State Board of Regents and was originally known as Regents College. Initial development of the College was funded by major grants from the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation. From 1971 until 1998, Regents College operated as a program of the Board of Regents (which also served as its board of trustees) and under the authority of The University of the State of New York by which degrees and diplomas were awarded during that period.
